True Dat! Allen schemes well and if everyone follows their assignment we have a good defense.

We have one in Davison, but another one wouldn't suck.

Davison and Vea would make a great rotation. Mix and match on the interior.

Re: Hats off to Dennis Allen

It's a combo of many things... Allen was one of them. Good free agents, good draft.

If it wasn't for all the damn injuries, the D would have been even better.

Re: Hats off to Dennis Allen

As an armchair observer (and from my tiny cramped flip-up seat in the Dome terrace), I always felt like the problem was more some bad eggs and poor discipline, poor attitude on the players' side of things, plus the usual suspects in the assistant coaching on defense that were holding us back every year....Allen is good but the changes in attitude and work ethic of the players on the field, is the biggest major difference that I see, more than any brilliant re-arranging of X's and O's, or mad scientist coaching strategy. Not calling out any names, but we had a lot of guys on the defensive side of the team the past few years who were hanging out at Republic Club at all hours of the morning, the VIP room of the club, and acting like they were on the TV show "Ballers." That never works in real life football.

I would like to see us healthy. Articles keep saying we are down 3 starters but its a lot more than that. Its more like 7. I think considering that he has done a excellent job.
